The Visit of the Steamship Historical Society of America in the Dibner Library

This post was written by Lilla Vekerdy, Head of Special Collections.

On June 24, 2013, The Dibner Library of the History of Science and Technology hosted a group from a national society interested in a special topic, steam vessel navigation. The Steamship Historical Society of America requested a rare book display and presentation following the encouragement of Brent Dibner, who is a Board Member of the association and knows about the Library’s extensive holdings on the subject.  Mr. Dibner is grandson of Dr. Bern Dibner (1897-1988), the founder of the Library.
